Yes, Mel said that. But the principle of operation is the same, two seasons even used the same VFX.
Can we rename the page to "Wind/Storm Spells"? Because it is obvious that the principle of operation of Marisol and Ruby was the same and this common classification of this kind of spells.
Marisol's wind spell sent out a singular gust of wind which just pushed Charity backwards, while Ruby's sent out powerful whirlwinds with storm-like intensity. Which was why it was likely considered more of a storm spell rather than a simple wind spell.
In any case, a "storm" strongly implying a wind force. So this is one classification anyway.
At least, Ruby didn't cause anything but a strong gust of wind.
So it was a wind storm (storm marked by high wind and no precipitation).
